Learning software packages

Is anybody aware of any resources on the internet (via youtube or otherwise), which can enable an individual to learn packages such as Excel and Word.

Thanks in advance for your response.

A much better option is to go to your local library and borrow the books you require. You then have a hard copy in front of you while you are learning.

Please do not start a second enquiry on the same subject, while the first is still marked a s 'Un-resolved'(28-12-10)

Thank you

What version of Word and Excel?

I agree with Terry Brown - yopu need whatever it is in hard copy (ie printed) so that you can refer to it as you go.I have helped a lot of people locally and my first recommendation is to go to the library (or a good bookshop - not WH Smiths) and look up in the index of a book on Word (or Excel) something to which you need an answer; if the index can't help you find the solution then don't borrow/buy THAT book. Continue until you find something that DOES help you solve your problem. Borrow/buy that one.
some people swear by one series of books, some by another ; it's a matter of what YOU can work with.
But as Borderview says, you need to look for your particular version of Word/Excel. There isn't a lot of difference over the years but sufficient to confuse someone who is unfamiliar with the program(s).

Hi folks

Thanks for all your advice so far.

Is there a way to determine what are the basic, intermediate and advanced skills in excel?

Thank You.
